Some Reviews...

The Yoga tree has been my favorite place to go in Chiang Mai, there's lots of different classes like yoga, self development workshops etc
They do the most amazing DanceMandala class which has changed my life for sure . I attended a few classes while I was here and loved every second! I look forward to coming back for more and the people you meet while at the Yoga tree are so inspiring and positive - it makes it very difficult to leave .
Thank you all for your wonderful energy ⚡ xxxx Ill be back!!

Place to be. Home. Wonderful vibe of the community & spirit of DANCEmandala and other body&soul nourishing practices. ♡ Loving it, loving it, recommending it to let it in and to experience it.

Yoga Tree has been an integral part of my life and happiness in Chiang Mai. Dance Mandala became my first "movement meditation" practice, which assisted me greatly in calming my mind and hearing my inner voice. Biodanza opens my heart and provides a fun safe space to explore interaction with other people on a deeper level than "every day life." I have met many of my closest friends at the Yoga Tree, and will always have a special place in my heart for this green nature haven in the middle of Chiang Mai city.

The Yoga tree is truly a lush green oasis in the busy old city. The Yoga tree community is maybe the reason why I keep coming back to Chiang Mai. The owner is passionate about dance so besides yoga there is DanceMandala, Biodanza , contact improvisation and sometimes even belly dance. But there's much more such as Qi gong, Tibetan sound bowl meditation, kirtan. Definitely worth a visit!

The Yoga Tree Chiang Mai was close to our accommodation and has a great Thai Teacher, Prae Wannaponpun. If you are looking for an authentic yoga experience with a great Thai yoga teacher, then, this is the place.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
